There have been quite a few changes at Brightpets recently, they are now incorporating MicroPets rather than remaining separate and as you can see from the picture above there are plans to incorporate new pets into the equation.
The BrightPets are now based on a HUD, the cats can be cared for via the HUD and the food is also kept track of via this same HUD. You can also refill the food bowls this way, meaning you don’t need to physically be with your pets to care for them. Consumables are also stored in the HUD, similar to Rovees, and therefore prevents losses as it is on a private database.
More traits have been added to the mix and the breeding has many more options, you can now breed in groups with other people.
There is the ability to keep track of breeding via the Kitty Profile page, which links the the parentage of the cat as well as listing the offspring the cat has produced.
Training has now been added and the cats and presumably future breedables can be taught commands.
Don’t forget your pets MUST be version 2.0 to be able to interact with your HUD. Below you will find a quick guide, for full information visit the BrightPets website.

== Hygiene ==
We added hygiene to be more of a fun interaction and not a boring task. Hygiene has an influence to moods and the closer to 100% Hygiene your piggy is, the more happier they are.
There are no penalties or health issues if your kitty is 0% clean although they wont be too happy
Kitty’s require 1 cleaning every 7 days at minimum, and there are several cleaning methods.
Wearing the sponge, whilst wearing your kitty you are able to clean your kitty. The clean process take 60 seconds.
If you prefer to clean more than 1 kitty instantly, you can use the bathing wand. This will clean ALL kitty within 96 meters without the need to attach them.
== Basic Care ==
Your kitty requires 8 hours of sleep a day and is awake for 16 hours on average. If you kitty gets too tired it will fall asleep and you cannot wake it until he/she has more energy.
If you take your kitty to inventory for 60 days, they will go into a coma.
If your kitty is in coma for 60 days, it will die.
